NVIDIA postpones Shield release date

NVIDIA postpones Shield release date
Seems like the portable gaming device Shield by NVIDIA won't be in the hands of consumers for another month. What is known is that there's an issue regarding a third-party mechanical component and it is being worked upon with the supplier. However, NVIDIA did not make it clear exactly what is going on, save for the fact that commercial shipments will be available within a month.



As you all know, this is a first of a kind device for NVIDIA. The American technology company is trying to make a breakthrough beyond businesses like PCs, smartphones and tablets, yet it's hard to tell what the outcome would be. Sony's PlayStation Vita sells at the same price ($300) and it's been out on the market for good year and a half, making it even more difficult for NVIDIA in the battle for handheld devices. Another rival, Nintendo's Wii U sells at $350 and has numerous games behind its back. Only time will show whether NVIDIA will trace out its way to gamers' hearts.

You can take a sneak peek at the Shield thanks to our very own John V. right here, including specifications, hands on and more pictures.

I hope Google releases a Snap800-powered gaming device soon and cripple this overpriced / overhyped POS once and for all

Get a life you! Why? The people here can't give their opinions? Of course Nvidia Shield will be expensive. And Nvidia has the monopoly of the PC games and android games. It's almost all optimized for their graphics. Enough of monopolies.

Not saying he can't have his opinion but when all he can do is hate on everything, his favorite things to diss are Nvidias Tegra which he calls Tecrap and Sony's displays. And Nvidias optimized games is a monopoly? If they pay game developers to optimize games for them its the end users that wins if they bought an Nvidia product.

i don't mind if Nvidia pays developers to optimize games for TegraZone, the thing I don't like is that only Tegra devices get the best graphics. I don't know if its same with all devices, but from this review the Transformer Prime has better graphics even through the iPad 3 has a far better CPU/GPU.http://www.anandtech.com/show/5688/apple-ipad-2012-review/16

its not an opinion to bash and curse other products. if you hate PSP Vita, Nintendo wii etc. Don't buy the stuff, wait for the google android gamer console and compare it to the ever popular gaming console that has established their name already..

i liked this device a lot. But 299$ its overpriced. Should be 200$. Totally worth it at that price.
